Re: Another question on oxalic vaporizing!!
About 25% of produced oxalic acid is used as a mordant in dyeing processes. It is used in bleaches, especially for pulpwood. It is also used in baking powder. It is also present in vegetables. In humans, oxalic acid has an oral LDLo (lowest published lethal dose) of 600 mg/kg.
I don't know how much you weigh but a Kg is about 2.2 lbs. But for me that works out to a dose of 47,727 mg. That is 1.6835 oz.
Some of the things it is found in like citric acid is found in oranges and other fruit.
Amaranth, Asparagus, Beans, snap, Beet leaves, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Carrot, Cassava, Cauliflower, Celery, Chicory, Chives, Collards, Coriander, Corn, sweet, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Endive, Garlic, Kale, Lettuce, Okra, Onion, Parsley, Parsnip, Pea, Bell Pepper[disambiguation needed], Potato, Purslane, Radish, Rutabaga, Spinach, Squash, Sweet potato, Tomato, Turnip, Turnip greens, Watercress.
You now have the proof that mother was trying to kill you with all those vegetables.
Parsley is one of the highest with 1.7 grams of acid per 100 grams or 1.7%. Spinach is nearly 1%
